I think Derek Jackson has hit the nail on the head. Whenever this idea is mentioned to locals the vast majority fall about laughing. Whilst I’m not doubting the willingness to attract more people to Cefn we need to start making the infrastructure attractive enough. I hope to goodness the application for funding goes where it belongs. In the bin.
This is a ludicrous idea and one which 99% of us locals shake our heads at and laugh. Make the village more attractive first for visitors. There is nothing there to attract and I feel that this comes from persons with other interests. For goodness sake get real and stop making us a laughing stock.
A major problem with Wrexham is the fact that our Councillors/Officers are not well versed with business acumen and experience. Go to Oswestry/ Shrewsbury on a Saturday and they are like Wrexham used to be years ago. There seems to be no business planning or long term strategy. Our town centre will be full of flats but the occupants will have to go elsewhere for goods. Our Councillors are more conscious of their own respective constituencies rather than the well being and future of our town. But at the end of the day we vote them in. We have a consultancy programme about future planning but that’s just for residential properties not business. Show some leadership Councillors and give Wrexham hope for the future.
The car park you refer to is private. The free car park is the large one at the end of the canal. It cost about £350k to construct and has direct access onto the canal towpath. The one referred to was leased by Wrexham Council until the new one was constructed. It’s now reverted back to private ownership. The problem with parking on the road is it’s causing mayhem at weekends when visitor numbers are high. The new car park is well signposted and convenient.
